Taking Care of Your Joints: A Guide to Joint Health


Joint health is an important aspect of overall wellness, yet it is often overlooked until there is a problem. As we age, our joints can become stiff and painful, making everyday activities more difficult. However, with proper care and attention, we can maintain healthy joints and prevent future issues. In this guide, we will discuss the importance of joint health and provide tips for keeping your joints in top shape.


Understanding Joint Health


Before we dive into tips for maintaining joint health, it's important to understand what joints are and why they are crucial to our overall well-being. Joints are simply the connections between bones that allow for movement and flexibility. They are the fingers, knees, ankles, neck, hips, etc. They are made up of cartilage, ligaments, and synovial fluid, all of which work together to cushion and protect the bones.


Doctors say that the very best knee replacement joint is only about 20% as smooth as a human knee. It’s amazing what God gave us!


When joints are healthy, they allow us to move freely and without pain. However, when they are damaged or inflamed, it can lead to discomfort and limited mobility.


It’s important to avoid inflammation. With 160,000 ORAC value, Youngevity BTT 2.0 Tablets are absolutely peerless at doing that!


Exercise Regularly



One of the best ways to maintain joint health is through regular exercise. Low-impact activities such as walking, swimming, and cycling can help strengthen the muscles around your joints and improve flexibility. It's important to find a balance between staying active and not putting too much strain on your joints. If you have joint pain, consult with a doctor or physical therapist to find the best exercises for your specific needs.


I also recommend a Low-Impact stepper, which eases pressure on your ankles, knees and hips as you exercise in the comfort of your own home.


Consider Youngevity Supplements



In addition to exercise, there are also supplements available that can support joint health. One popular option is Youngevity Biometics Flexi-Care. This supplement contains a combination of ingredients, including Vitamin E, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM, that work together to support joint function and mobility, without any sugars. See its Supplement Facts sheet.


As a musician, I play pretty much all instruments, including the piano. And I type my own novels. When my hands started freezing up. I went to a Doctor of Physical Therapy.


Now, he’s no slouch.


Remember Rob Gronkowski who paired with Tom Brady to win Super Bowl 2021? Well, I saw The Gronk working out there twice in early 2021, preparing for football. Amazing athlete! Anyhow, this Doctor only helped my hands somewhat.


Then I took Flexi-Care, and that freed my hands up Totally in 10 days! Thank you Dr. Wallach and Youngevity. I love the stuff. I told the doctor, and he said “hallelujah!”


Another option is the more expensive Youngevity Healthy Bone and Joint Pak. It’s a comprehensive solution that also insures you also get the 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids, 60 minerals and 6 essential fatty acids you need to thrive.


Now, I take the Youngevity Healthy Bone and Joint Pak.


Maintain a Healthy Weight


REV makes your body burn fat as fuel. I am 6’ tall and weigh 171#. I use REV to keep my weight in check. Now, I don’t go nuts with sweets, but I do eat what I want. Mostly, that’s protein and fats, with very few carbs.


You see, the body makes blood glucose from all three, but from fats and proteins, the process is much slower. Carbs spike your blood sugar, over-stressing the pancreas. When the pancreas fails, or diminishes significantly, you get diabetes.


You really don’t want that one.


Excess weight can put added stress on your joints, especially the hips, knees, ankles, and feet, leading to pain and discomfort. By maintaining a healthy weight, you can reduce the strain on your joints and improve overall joint health.


My friend Harold was a slim Marathoner, who took a dozen Tylenols each time he ran, just to make his joint pain bearable. Terrible! He probably has no kidney function left now.


If you are struggling with weight management, consult with a doctor or nutritionist to develop a plan that works for you. That plan is not taking Tylenol.


Protect Your Joints


Injuries to joints can lead to long-term damage and pain. To prevent injuries, it's important to take precautions when participating in physical activities. This may include wearing protective gear, using proper form, and taking breaks when needed. Additionally, be mindful of repetitive motions that can put strain on your joints and try to mix up your activities to avoid overuse.


I like to exercise with an inexpensive Stepper when it’s raining outside.


Listen to Your Body


Lastly, it's important to listen to your body and pay attention to any changes or discomfort in your joints. If you experience pain or stiffness, take a break and rest. If the pain persists, consult with a doctor to determine the cause and develop a treatment plan. There are at least six different kinds of Arthritis, and it’s possible to get them all.


By following these tips and taking care of your joints, you can maintain healthy joints and prevent future issues.


Remember to stay active, consider supplements, maintain a healthy weight, protect your joints, and listen to your body. Your joints will thank you for it!
